REAL ESTATE. 

Our list of improved and vacant property is very large, and 
embraces some of the choicest Business, Residence, Apartment and 
Manufacturing property in every section of the city. 

We aim to keep thoroughly informed regarding values, and 
the best investments the market offers. 

LOANS. 



Money to loan on improved Chicago real estate in large and 
small amounts, at the very lowest current rates of interest. We 
have special facilities for placing large loans on Central Business 
property below the usual market rate of interest. 

We keep on hand a choice line of carefully selected mortgages 
(principal and interest payable in gold), ready for sale, which net 
the purchaser from 5 to 7 per cent, per annum, payable semi- 
annually. We collect and remit interest to any part of the country, 
attend to the renewal of insurance policies, and protect the investor 
against tax sales, free of charge. 

RENTS.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE. 

The par value of exchange is $4.86.7-10, "which means that $4.86.7-10 is the 
value of the pound sterling in United States gold. This rate of demand sterling 
bills varies and is subject to the supply and demand of bills drawn against the 
other side. When our imports are large and our exports are light, the balance 
of trade is against us, and there is a sharp demand for bills, which carries the 
price up until it reaches a point where gold can be shipped at a profit. If, on 
the other hand, our exports of grain, cotton, etc., are large and imports light, 
the balance of trade will be in our favor. There will be a liberal supply of 
bills drawn against shipments, and rates may decline until they reach a 
point where gold can be shipped at a profit from the other side to pay the 
balance owing to us by Europe. These rates are influenced to some extent 
at times by a stringent money market on either side, or a demand for gold 
for political or financial effect, or by the buying and selling of our securities. 
The rate of demand sterling bills at which gold can be shipped to London 
without loss is 4.88^g for bars and 4.89i^4 for coin, and the rate at which it 
can be imported without loss is 4.833^. London buying largely of American 
stock weakens exchange; London selling hardens it. In shipments of 
cotton, grain, and merchandise bills of lading are received by the shipper. 
These bills of lading are bought by the leading foreign exchange houses 
who issue their own bills, which are in turn bought by merchants and bank- 
ers to cover balances due on the other side; or the house may transmit the 
bill for collection to their correspondent in Europe. A sterling bill on 
London is good for payment of any indebtedness in any part of Europe. 

The foreign exchange market during nearly all of 189.5 has been influ- 
enced in a most important manner by the Rothschild-Belmont syndicate, 
which made a contract with the government in February for the purchase 
of $50,000,000 United States bonds. A provision of that contract looked to 
operations by the syndicate to maintain the government's gold stock and the 
price of sterling exchange which up to the time of the bond sale had been 
at a point which resulted in heavy exports of gold, has since that date been 
so manipulated that no gold has been exported. An important factor in 
the exchange market during the month of May has been the heavy pur- 
chases of American securities for foreign account.

BANES AND BANKING. 63 



COMMERCIAL PAPER. 

The business of handling commercial paper through brokers has grown 
\ip in Chicago almost entirely in the last 15 years. In its beginning it con- 
sisted largely in the business of brokers who negotiated paper that was not 
readily marketable directly at a bank. In its development, however, it has 
grown far away from that idea and has become one of the great financial 
interests of the city. To-day the paper made by some of the strongest 
houses in the commercial field is handled exclusively through, brokers in 
this way, and those borrowers have little or no direct dealing with banks 
in the floating of their papei*. Commercial paper brokers, too, are now 
hardly what the name implies, for they more properly come under the 
head of bankers than brokers, as the3' buy the paper outright as a rule and 
then sell it again instead of merely doing the business as an agent and 
handling it on a commission. 

Individuals and commercial houses who place paper in this way make 
their notes running from sixty days to four months and payable at the date 
of maturity without interest. These are discounted by the broker, and he, 
in turn, sells the paper to other bankers or to individuals, usualh^ making, 
in the transaction, a commission of one-quarter of 1 per cent. The Chicago 
banks are themselves large buj'ers of paper handled in this way, and a great 
deal goes to eastern banking institutions and individual investors. Banks 
throughout the West also find a disposition for idle surplus in the i:)urchase 
of such paper, and as they can buj^ paper signed by some of the best known 
names in the commercial field, the investment frequently has in it more of 
the character of safety than do their loans made in their own field. 

The business of handling commercial paper in Chicago has grown to an 
enormous extent. The total business of this character done in Chicago has 
reached as high as $60,000,000 or $65,000,000 per annum. It was naturally 
less than that for the past year, as all lines of business show a restriction 
in the borrowing demand as a result of dull trade. 

Among the lines which borrow in this way might be mentioned the 
packers, lumbermen, manufacturers and jobbers, especially those who re- 
quire a larger sum of money at certain seasons of the year than any one 
bank would feel justified in giving them. They are thus enabled to take 
advantage of whatever idle money there is in different sections of the 
country, and as a rule get lower rates of interest than they could in borrow- 
ing from one source. 

The same is also true of private interests desiring to place loans on col- 
lateral, as the broker, refiecting the whole money market, can often effect a 
distinct saving in rates. 

The rates at which commercial paper is sold in this way, of course, 
vary with the condition of the money market. During the past year the 
best known names have been able to discount paper as low as 4 per cent. 
The rates may be stated generally as ruling from 4 to 7 per cent., varying 
according to the condition of the money market and the character of the 
signer of the paper.

MUNICIPAL BONDS. 

WHAT THEY ARE, AND WHY THEY ARE ONE OF THE BEST INVESTMENTS 
POSSIBLE. 

There is no form of investment securities tliat liave grown so rapidly into 
favor in recent years as municipal bonds. They have proved to be the 
steadiest in value of all securities, government bonds only excepted, and as 
they pay a fair rate of interest, they have become one of the most popular 
forms of investment security. The rapid growth of cities in the United 
States and the great amount of public improvement undertaken by these 
cities, has made it necessary to raise large sums of money for such public 
work. That money has to be raised by issuing municipal bonds. When a 
city, town, county or school district has occasion to build water works, sew- 
ers, erect public buildings or make other expenditures for the public good, 
involving an outlay beyond the regular receipts from taxes, the law gives 
power within certain limits to borrow money by issuing "promises to pay." 
These run for a definite period at a fixed rate of interest, and are secured by 
lien on the taxes assessed in the municipality. 

The lien of municipal bonds is a security superior to any form of obli- 
gation that may rest upon the property. It is a prior lieu to any mortgage 
that may be given by individual owners, either before or after the execution 
of the bonds, and underlies any sort of obligation which the owner of the 
property ma,y himself make. 

In judging of the character of municipal bonds, the important points 
are the legality of the issue, the character and population of the municipal- 
ity, the purpose for which the issue is made, and the ratio between the total 
debt and the total assessed valuation of the property upon which the bonds 
are a lien. 

The experience of the last quarter of a century has proven that bonds 
issued by a prosperous community and for the purpose of legitimate public 
improvements, offer as absolute security as any investment that is brought 
before the public. During that period the loss by default has not been over 
one-tenth of one per cent, of the issues ma le in the entire United States. Cer- 
tainly no other form of investment securities, except government and state 
bonds, can offer such a record. The advantage of municipal bond invest- 
ments was sharply set forth during the panic of 1893. During that period 
of financial difliculties, quotations for all investments, of course, declined 
sharply. The best railroad bonds, in many cases, broke from 10 to 15 
per cent. No other class of investment showed such a small decline as did 
municipal bonds. The average decline may be quoted as between 5 and 
■6 per cent, and prices were quick to rebound after the financial disturbance 
liad passed its more acute form. The action of the market for municipal 



BAWK8 AND BANKING. 65 

bonds during the panic was so favorable that it has given a, sharp impetus to 
that form of investment this year. 

One of the chief objections to municipal bonds is the fact that there is no 
regular public market for any but the most prominent issues, and that they 
cannot, therefore, alwaj'S be sold at a moment's notice. It is impossible, by the 
very nature of the bonds, that there should be active trading in them. They 
are purchased by investors for long-time investment, and locked up in strong 
boxes. There are few, if any, speculative transactions. Many issues are 
small in amount, and that itself prevents them from being actively dealt in 
in the market. The business of handling municipal bonds, however, has 
become so important that great bond houses have grown up. These houses, 
under all ordinary conditions, make a market for all issues which they float. 
Anyone buying bonds of them may bring the bonds back at almost any time 
and they will be bought back at a price which will be governed by the value 
of money at that time. 

The law governing the eastern savings banks prescribes the lines on 
which those banks may make investments. The savings banks are the chief 
purchasers of municipal bonds, but in the Eastern states their purchases are 
confined to bonds issued by municipalities of a given population, and with a 
proportion of indebtedness not greater than the prescribed limit. The 
bonds which come within the range of such savings banks investment, there- 
fore, have a special market value. The bonds of some of the largest Eastern 
cities sell upon the lowest interest basis. The bonds of Xew York will 
average selling on a basis which will net the investors about S^jj' per cent 
The last issues made by the city of New York were currency bonds floated in 
May, 1894, and they sold at a price netting SVg per cent. The bonds of the 
average Eastern cities are now selling on a basis of about %% to 4 per cent, 
while the bonds of Western cities range from 4 to 5 per cent. Bonds issued 
by smaller municipalities are at a rather lower price, selling on a basis of 
5}.2 and in some cases 6 per cent. • 

The market for municipal bonds during the last year has been active 
and decidedly strong. The competition for new issues has been keener 
perhaps than ever before, and the prices realized by the municipalities put- 
ting out new bonds have been unusually high. As an important factor in 
the market for municipal bonds is the buying by eastern savings banks 
and by the trustee's of special funds, it is important to note that there 
lias been new legislation by several of the eastern States, and notably by 
New York State, which enlarges the scope of permitted investments by 
saving banks and trustees. Those bonds which come within the legal limi- 
tations surrounding the investments of savings banks are, of course, some- 
what higher in the market than bonds of corresponding character that may 
not be purchased by the savings bank. The action of the legislatures of the 
eastern states is arbitrary, however, and the judgment exercised does not 
seem always to be the keenest. There are many issues of bonds that, in 
point of security, will compare favorably with anything that the savings 
banks are likely to buy, that are on the prohibited list. 

Chicago will make an important issue of refunding bonds in Juh'.

The object for which this Association is formed is to enable its mem- 
bers to transact their business, connected with the buying, selling, renting 
and caring for real estate, and the loaning of money upon the same, to 
better ads'antage than heretofore, by the adoption of such rules and regu- 
lations as they may deem proper, and by enabling them to take vmited 
action upon such matters as may be deemed for the common, good. 



CHIGAOO REAL EfiTATE BOARD. 67 



CHICAGO REAL ESTATE. 

During the past sixty years, more money has been made by investors in 
Chicago real estate than in any other city upon the face of the earth in a 
corresponding period of time. The steady growth of the city from the 
beginning, through all conditions of general financial depression or activity, 
and a relative appreciation in wealth, have combined to give progressive 
increase to land values. This is so, because capitalists, large and small, 
have seen that such investments are profitable, it can be said that real 
estate has always taken precedence with them over other forms of invest- 
ment, to a greater degree than obtains anywhere else in the country. The 
official records of the city demonstrate most convincingly the cumulative 
increase of assessed property valuation, the latter keeping pace with the 
extraordinary growth in population. Thus, when the first assessment was 
made in 1837, the newly created city having a population of 4,170, the real 
estate valuation was $286, 842. The census of 1850 gave a population of 
28,269, and the property valuation Avas $3,401,512. In the next ten years, the 
number of inhabitants increased to 109,206, and the real estate valuation to 
$16,015,923. In 1870 the population was 306,605, and the property valuation 
$105,066,780. In 1894 the population was 1,567,727, and the assessed valua- 
tion was $111,480,497. The figures last given do not properly represent the 
valuation, as after 1874 the basis, under a new law, was scarcely one third 
the actual value of the property, so that the real estimate— that followed 
previous to the date last given, would show a property valuation for 1894 of 
upwards of $330,000,000. No other city upon earth can present such a show- 
ing as this, and each decade demonstrates the fact, an appreciation in real 
estate values commensurate with the growth in population. 

These figures are adequate to an understanding of the high favor in 
which Chicago realty has alwaj's been held by parlies having money for 
investment. They likewise account for the increase in values everywhere 
over the city. The splendid opportunities for making money have led now 
and then to speculation which has reacted to disadvantage, by raising prop- 
erty in given districts to prices beyond the warrant of then existing demand 
or possible income-producing. At no time, however, was this speculation 
general, and, considering the marvelous development of the city, the sur- 
prise is not that there should have been so much, but that there has been so 
little speculation. Conditions, however, are conducing to even greater con- 
servatism in realty transactions than has characterized the past history of 
the city. Hitherto a lack of transportation facilities militated against a 
reasonable rise in values in some portions, while the construction of elevated 
and additional surface roads contributed to unhealthy activity in the territory 
through which they ran. The acquisition of large areas by annexation fur- 
nished material for two active operations for a brief season, and this had to 
be met by the universal compensative law of after- adjustment. As stated, 
though, conditions are meeting and overcoming these irregularities. Three 
elevated railroad lines now in operation, with one soon to be constructed, 
and the substitution of rapid transit, cable or electricity, for slow horses on 
all the surface lines, combine to give adequate transportation facilities to all 
sections, bringing every portion into close communication with the central 
business area. This should, and doubtless will, assure steady growth in all 
parts of the city, and by enlarging the field of operations in realty through 
the offering of more equal inducement for investment in every direction, 
will tend to prevent too rapid increase in any one locality. Such conditions 
are of themselves a check to over-speculation, and the pvomise of the future 



68 CHICAGO REAL ESTATE BOARD. 

is a healthy demand, with steadily increasing values based upon the existing 
demand. 

Added to the improved transportation facilities, and constituting a most 
important factor in the investment value of Chicago realtj', is the accumu- 
lation of capital seeking investment. This has had a marked effect, not only 
upon prices, but also upon the income expected upon the amount invested. 
Large investors, for Instance, who formerly could not be persuaded to take 
hold of down town realty with a rental of less than seven or eight, or ten 
per cent., even, are now in quest of well located properties, with a manifest 
future, that can be bought on a basis of less than five per cent. Nor is this 
state of affairs limited to the business district, investments of all sizes and 
all locations being similarly affected. These favorable conditions have had 
a decidedly beneficial effect in making stable the values of real estate. 
Large amounts of money are at all times seeking investment in good prop- 
erty, thus making it an easily convertible asset. As an evidence of this, 
inside real estate could always find a market during the past three years of 
extreme dullness at a small discount from the prices that were maintained 
in a previously very active market, the sacrifice being very much less than 
was necessary to be made by those M'ho were compelled to realize upon 
speculative seciuities. It is not denied that realty can be found in Chicago 
which would fail to bring anj'thing like the prices that prevailed four years 
ago. Investigation, however, will show that such holdings were advanced 
solely in the expectation of profits to be yielded in the single World's Fair 
year, or they are outside properties whose wrong-headed owners allowed 
enthusiasm "to take them several years in advance of any possible growth. 
These instances, however, are exceptional, and offer no argument against 
the statement of fact that Chicago real estate is an easily convertible asset at 
all times. The steadiness in values through the period of universal depres- 
sion is an added argument in favor of such investments, and the condition is 
in most favorable contrast with Chicago's previous experience in times of 
dullness, as, notably, in 1878-1879, when property went begging at prices 
ranging from one-half to one-eighth those maintained a few years previous 
to that time. 

The attractiveness of the handling of Chicago real estate follows from 
what has been said, and, as a consequence, among those engaged in this 
business are some of the ablest men in the city, who have directed their best 
energies to the study of relative values, and whose opinions on matters per- 
taining to realty receive the same consideration as the views of the banker 
or attorney on questions of finance or law. Such men deserve the appreci- 
ation they receive, and in this age of specialists, when every man finds it 
necessary to concentrate all his thought and energy in one direction, if he 
would succeed, sellers and buyers of real estate are compelled to rely more 
than ever upon the honesty and good judgment of their agent. The magni- 
tude of the area of the city, and the differing values in the various districts 
make necessary the offices of the real estate agent, and it is highly credit, 
able that the demand for such has created a thoroughly efficient and emi- 
nently reliable body of men, who have attained a judgment that is nearly 
infallible in such matters. 



There has been more activity in the way of electric railroad develop- 
ment in Chicago than in any other point in the world during the last year. 
No less than 500 miles of electric line will be in operation in Chicago and 
suburbs of the city before tlie close of the present year. By the end of tliis 
year there will be practically no horse car lines in operation in the city. 
Several millions of dollars are being spent in converting the horse car lines 
to trolley lines. The increase in traffic shown on those lines already 
equipped with the trolley cars fully warrants the expenditures. 



CHICAGO REAL ESTATE BOARD. 



MORTGAGE LOANS. 

The absolute security offered in Cliicago real estate has resulted in the 
building up of an immense mortgage business in this city, the more impor- 
tant transactions in which are conducted through brokers of established 
reputation who make a specialty of this class of securities. The latter fol- 
lows from the fact that the value of the security depend^ upon the conserva- 
tive appraisement of the property at interest, and it is essential that the 
agent through whom the negotiations are made be familiar with the subject. 
Real estate mortgage brokers of established reputation are naturally those 
who would be sought out by parties desiring loans upon the best class of 
property, and hence they would have the most desirable securities to offer 
to the lender. 

The necessity for an intermediary between the borrower and lender is 
manifest. The borrower, through the agent, is brought into ready commu- 
nication with the lender, a desideratum that might not be possible other- 
wise. Certainly there is avoidance of delay, and time in such matters is 
usually a factor of greatest moment. The lender finds in the agent a most 
necessary factor, for he looks to him to attend to all the legal requirements 
in such transactions, the proper framing of the requisite papers, and, in fact, 
every one of the details connected with such business. So, too, the agent 
looks after the collection of the interest, the payment of taxes, and the 
insurance of the premises, and all this without further compensation than 
the original commission. The important part taken by the broker suggests 
the necessity of caution on the part of lender and borrower in selecting 
those who have established themselves as conservative, efficient and thor- 
oughly reliable. 

The leading mortgage brokers are, after all, something more and beyond 
brokers. They really advance the money themselves in many cases, depend- 
ing with confidence upon the market for an after-disposing of the paper, 
which their superior judgment tells them is most desirable, and will be 
speedily sought by lenders. This is an easier and ciuicker method than the 
bringing of the borrower and lender together, as was the rule in other days, 
and is in manj^ other ways more satisfactory to all parties concerned. The 
commission is in all cases paid by the borrower. 

The abundance of money offered for investment in mortgage securities 
in the past year has driven the interest rate for high class securities to a 
point lower than was ever reached before in Chicago. Loans have been 
made as low as 4)^ and 4i^ per cent, but it should be understood that the 
lower rates pertain to the best business property, with a wide mS,t-gin for 
depreciation. Smaller loans, those that are made upon homes or for less 
important business improvements, are most frequently handled by brokers, 
and the prevailing rates upon these classes range from 5 to 7 per-cent. the 
borrower paying in addition a commission of 2% per cent., together with 
the fee of the lender's attorney for the examination of title, or in lieu 
thereof, the cost of a guarantee policy insuring the title to the lender to the 



70 CHICAGO REAL ESTATE BOARD. 

amount of the loan. Investors express entire confidence in this class of 
loans, because of the rate of interest they receive as well as the safety of 
the security. The latter becomes practically sure when the loans are 
effected through reliable mortgage brokers. The rule observed by lenders 
is that the propert}' shall be at least double the value of the loan, the valua- 
tion bsing based upon a fair present market price; also that the building 
shall be insured in his favor. There are other conditions that have their 
weight in determining the interest rate, such as the amount of the loan, the 
location and surroundings of the property in their relation to possible appre- 
ciation in value, etc. In short, the careful lender sees to it that the interest 
rate is adequate and his security is ample in all cases. 

Chicago is an especiallj^ good field for loaning money because of its 
rapid growth and the consequent great amount of money that is required 
for the carrying on of the extended building operations. The stability of 
the values has long been recognized throughout the countrj% and conse- 
quently there has been attracted here a large amount of capital from the 
East, because of the larger interest rate to be had. Lenders there have 
called in their loans and transferred them to this great and growing city, 
where the securities do not fluctuate, but in which, as a fact, they get better 
with time, in consequence of the nearly certain advance in value. Real 
estate is the only security of which the latter can be said. The only chance 
of loss is in depreciation, a rare possibility in Chicago, and especially is this 
true where reliable brokers are employed, their rule being an invariable 
one, to allow a sufficient margin to guard against any possible loss. 

Not only has the excellent character of those loans attracted much 
foreign capital, but there is plenty additional to be had for proper securi- 
ties, the confidence of the large eastern lenders being firm and unshaken. A 
feature of the market is the preference that is shown for guarantee mort- 
gage policies over the opinions of lawj'ers; these policies being issued by 
perfectly responsible corporations, whose opportiuaities for correct knowl- 
edge are complete. The feeling that these guarantees are absolutely reliable 
is so strong that they are gradually becoming a positive requirement in 
many cases. 



A notable sale of City of Chicago refunding water bonds has been made 
to foreign purchasers. The issue is |!2,748,000 and they are to take the 
place of 20 year 7s which will mature Julj^ 1, 1895. The bonds were pur- 
chased entirely for foreign investment. The price paid was $104,(545. This 
compares with the price obtained by the City of Chicago for similar bonds 
just a year ago of $103.2(3. 

The* elevated railroad companies are profiting ty the experience of 
those first organized, and it is proposed to equip the Metropolitan Elevated 
and the Northwestern Elevated in a way which will leave practically no 
fixed charges on the properties. The Northwestern Elevated will be built 
without the issue of any bonds, and the Metropolitan Elevated will be com- 
pleted by the issue of preferred stock instead of bonds, as first contem- 
plated.

74 STOCK EXCHANGE. 



HOW TRADING IS CONDUCTED ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE. 

Operations on the Stock Exchange are, as a rule, conducted on a margin; 
that is to sa}', the trader puts up with his broker a suthcient amount to cover 
the ordinary tiuctuatious of the security, and the broker furnishes the rest 
of the capital necessary. Margins of $10 a share are usually asked for, 
although many brokers' take trades at a smaller margin than that, while on 
the other hand, in the case of high priced stocks, subject to wide fluctua- 
tions, a much larger margin may be required. Traders who buy securities 
and pay for them in fall, taking up the actual stock certificates are not gen- 
erally recognized as speculators at all, but are classed as investors. Specu- 
lative transactions on a margin are not, as a rule, made by the large houses 
for a less amount than 100 shares in the Xew York market, and 50 shares in 
the Chicago market. Some brokers will handle less than 50 shares in the 
Chicago market, however, but no trades can be made in the account for less 
than 50 shares. 

If a customer gives a broker an order to buy, say 100 shares of the stock 
selling at par, he wull be expected to deposit with his broker $1,000, and the 
broker will furnish the other $8,000 or $9,000 necessary to pay for the stock, 
he, in turn, obtaining it from a banker, with whom he uses the stock pur- 
chased as the basis for a collateral loan. The broker usually makes a 
monthly statement to his customer, which contains the interest charged on 
the portion of the capital needed in the transaction, which the broker had 
furnished, and if the customer has purchased on a declining market, the 
broker will, from time to time, call upon him for additional margins, the 
idea being that the broker must be protected by a margin which will keep 
the amouut of money which he has advanced in the transaction at least $10 
a share below the current quotation. 

If the customer wishes to operate on the short side of the market, the 
iDroker is able to borrow, in the case of nearly all stocks, the certificates 
necessary for delivery, and the customer may order him to sell, again pro- 
tecting him to the extent of $10 a share. 

On the Chicago Exchange the greater part of the speculative business 
is done in the account, and in that case no actual delivery of stock is made 
until the end of the month, and in most of the speculative operations no actual 
delivery of stock is made at all, a purchase in the account being offset by a 
subsequent sale, or vice versa. When an operator's transactions are in the 
account, and he washes to carry them over from the account of one month 
into the account of the next, the broker buys such stocks as he is short of in 
the first account, and sells an equal amount in the second account, and sells 
such stocks as he is long of in the first account, and buying an equal amouut 
in the second stock, and thus transferring all deals from one account to the 
next. This operation is technically known as "turning stock," and the 
turning price varies with the value of money, and may usually be calcu- 
lated to run one or two per cent, above what it would cost to actually borrow 
the money on short call at the bank to carry the security. 

The commissions to the broker vary with the price of the securities, but 
for nearly all securities traded in it is one-eighth of one per cent. That 
amount is paid when the security is bought, and a like amount when it is 
sold. There is also a commission charge when stocks are turned from one 
account to the other. 



STOCK EXCHANGE. 



ACCOUNT TRADING. 

Transactions " for the account" at the Chicago Stock Exchange have not 
their exact counterpart at any of the other exchanges in this country. On 
the London exchange there is something similar. The system is easy to 
understand. When one buys stock "for tlie account "' the actual delivery is 
not made till the last trading day of the current month. The total amount of 
sales and the total amount of purchases in the account must, of course, al- 
ways balance. There is a clearing house through which all transactions are 
passed, so that if a man buys 100 shares of a certain stock in the account 
one day and sells 100 shares of the same stock the next day, or on any day 
before the end of the month, the one trade cancels the other, and there is 
neither a delivery nor a reception of stock. :Margins to secure the safety of 
trades are deposited in the clearing-house, and are changed each day, on the 
basis of the "settlement prices" which are made each afternoon. Actual 
delivery of stock is made on the last day of the month, but a transaction 
may be transferred from one account to the next by selling the stock as 
reo-ular and buying a like amount in the second account, or vice versa if one 
is short in the first account. There is no transaction for less than 50 shares 
in the account. 

SPECULATION IN COTTON. 

The method of speculating in cotton is by the 100 bales of 500 lbs. each, 
100 bales weighing 50,000 lbs., which is the minimum amount dealt in. 
Speculation is in future months, as in the grain market. In the cotton mar- 
kets of the United States the cent is divided into one hundred parts or 
" points," so that a fluctuation of 50 " points " is equal to i.j cent per pound. 
Each point, up or down, is equal to $5 on each 100 bales. If cotton is bought 
at say 8 cents, an advance of 20 points would show a profit of $100; an ad- 
vance of 50 points (1., cent per lb.) would give $250 profit on each 100 bales. 
An advance of one cent a pound means .$500 profit on each 100 bales. The 
recent sharp advance within a few weeks showed profits of over $1,000 on 
each 100 bales. In an active cotton market profits or losses accumulate very 
rapidly. In the past few years some large fortunes have been made in cotton 
Avith only moderate capital at the start. The cotton market is an inviting 
field for speculation on account of the frequent and fair fluctuations in 
market price. Ordinarv fluctuations, except of extreme high or low level, 
range 30 to 50 points, and the buyer at low prices has good value for bis 
money. 

TERMS AND SLANG USED ON THE EXCHANGE. 

Many of the phrases used on 'Change, as well as the methods of busi- 
ness, are enigmas to outsiders. It is astonishing how many well informed 
and acute business intellects cannot grasp a transaction in stocks where a 
put or a call, or straddle or spread is involved. "We mention below many of 
the term6 used on the " street ": 

" Block "—A number of shares, say, 5,000 or 10,000 shares, massed to- 
gether and sold or bought in a lump. 

To " buy in "—The act of purchasing stock in order to meet a " short 
contract or to enable one to return stock which has been borrowed. 

" Carrying " stock— To hold stock with the expectation of selling it at 
an advance. ,,. ^ .^ , . , 

" Clique"— A combination of operators controlling vast capital in order 
to advance or break down the market. , , 

" Conversion "—Bonds are frequently issued with a provision whereby 
they can at any moment be exchanged for equivalent stock. Such securities 
are'called " convertible," and the act of substitution is called '• conversion. 



76 STOCK EXCHANGE. 



_ " Corners "—When the market is over-sold, the shorts, if compelled to- 
deliver, find themselves in a "corner." 

" Collaterals " — Any kind of Wall street values given as security when 
money is borrowed. 

" Cover " — Where stock has been sold short and the market advances, 
the seller buys where he can in order to protect himself on the day of 
delivery. This is "covering one's shorts." 

" Delivery " — When stock is brought to the buyer in exact accordance 
with the rules of the Stock Exchange, it is called a " good delivery." When 
there are irregularities, the shares being of unacceptable issues, or the rules- 
of the Exchange being contravened in some particular, the delivery is pro- 
nounced " bad," and the buyer can appeal to the board. 

A " drop " in stock is equivalent to a " break," except that it may 
possibly be due to wholly natural causes. 

" Flat " — This term is used where money or stock is lent without interest. 

A " flyer " is a small side operation not employing one's whole capital. 
It is nearly equivalent to what is known as a venture. 

" Gunning " a stock is to use every art to produce a break when it is 
known that a certain house is heavily supplied and would be unable to resist 
an attack. 

" Holding the market " is to buy sufficient stock to keep the price from 
declining. 

" Hypothecating " — Putting up " collaterals." 

" Long " in stock — When a man is carrying stock for a rise. The market 
is " off" when prices have fallen, either in a week, a day, or even an after- 
noon. 

" Under the rule " — When a member of the Exchange fails to meet the 
calls for margins during the time specified by the trading rules, the chairman 
of the Exchange announces that he will sell, under the rules, for the account 
of the delinquent member, such securities as that member held, and wilL 
buy, under the rules, such securities as the delinquent was short of. Sales- 
of this character are marked up, followed by the letters " U. II.," to indicate 
"under the rule," and such quotations are, of course, an indication of a failure. 

" Short "—When a trader believes current quotations are too high, he 
may make the sale a selling contract for any security, although he does not 
at the time actually own the security, but expects to buy it later at a lower 
price to deliver on his contract. Such a sale is known as a " short" sale. 

" AVash trading" — Transactions that are made between brokers for the 
purpose of influencing the course of the market, or for registering quotations 
on any particular security, are known as "washed transactions," when there 
is no intention of making a delivery. Such trades are prohibited by the 
rules of the Exchange, and members who are detected making ostensible 
transactions, when in fact no delivery of securities is contemplated, are 
disciplined. 

" Regular stock " — The term regular is used in a Stock Exchange trans- 
action to distinguish it from a transaction in the account. When stock is 
sold regular, the actual stock is delivered the following day and paid for by 
the receiving broker in full. 

" Puts " — W^hen one trader agrees for a consideration to receive from 
another trader at a specified time at a specified price a certain number of 
shares of any stock, he sells a " put." A trader usually sells a " put " at 
several points below the current quotation, and believes at the time that the 
market will not fall below the price named at which the stock may be put 
to him. The buyer, on the other hand, expects the market to fall below that 
price, and hopes to be able to buy the stock lower than the quotation named, 
and then " put " it to the seller at an advanced quotation and thus make a 
profit. 

"Calls" — A "call" is the exact reverse of a "put." A man selling a 
" call " agrees to deliver within a specified time at a specified price a certain; 



STOCK EXCHANGE. 



number of shares of any security, providing the buyer chooses to call for 
it. The buyer of either a " put " or a " call " need not exercise his option if 
the market does not fluctuate sufficientlj^ to enable him to make a profit. 
The seller is, of course, bound to receive or deliver the actual securities if 
the buyer chooses to exercise his privilege under the " put " or '" call " which 
he has paid for. Neither " puts " nor " calls " are recognized as legitimate 
transactions by the Exchange. 

" A squeegee '" — ^A trader may sell a security under a " squeegee " agree- 
ment, which is in effect an agreement to take back the security within a 
specified time at a price representing a definitely limited loss to the pur- 
chaser. Any such transaction is irregular and not recognized by the rules 
of the Exchange. 

. " Underwriting " — When a new security is to be quoted on the market 
it is sometimes the plan to organize a syndicate to " underwrite" the issue. 
In this case the syndicate practically subscribes to the entire issue at, say, 
•95. Public subscriptions for the entire issue are then opened at, say, par, 
for the security, and if the public subscribes for the entire issue the under- 
writers make the difference between the 95 they agreed to pay and the par 
which the public did pay. That profit is made" without any money invest- 
ment by the underwriters. In case the public subscription is imsuccessful, 
however, the underwriters are compelled to take at the agreed price such 
portion of the securities as have not been subscribed for. 

" Over-sold " — A market is said to be over-sold when the short interest 
is unduly large — that is, when a great many traders, believing it is time for 
quotations to decline — have sold securities which they did not have and are 
in a position where they must sooner or later become buyers in order to 
obtain the securities to deliver on their contracts. 

" Over-loaded " — A market is " over-loaded " when speculative buyers 
have purchased on a margin more securities than they can readily carry 
in case of a decline. Bear operators at such times attempt to force a 
decline in order to " shake out" weak holders. 

" Stop orders "—An operator may give his broker orders to close out his 
deals when quotations reach a cei'tain point, and in that case he is said to 
have given a " stop order." When a declining market is filled with " stop 
orders" to sell, the bears may make extraordinary efforts to force quotations 
down to a point which reaches the " stop orders,'' and which will thus throw 
on the market more securities. In the same way on an advancing market 
the bulls may endeavor to raise quotations to a point that will reach stoj) 
orders of short sellers, and force their brokers to become buyers. 

The "Vanderbilt" roads are' the New York Central, Lake Shore, West 
Shore, Canada Southern, Michigan Central and " Nickel Plate." 

" Goulds " comprise ]\Iis8ouri Pacific, Union Pacific, Western Union 
Telegraph, and the Southwestern system of Pacific roads generally. 

" Grangers " include Chicago, Milwaukee et St. Paul, Chicago & North- 
western, Chicago & Rock Island, and Chicago, Burlington & Quincy. 

"Long interest" — When h-rge amounts of stock are held in the street, 
on speculation, among the active operators and brokers, they constitute the 
*'long interest in the market." A heavy long interest, while tending to keep 
up and advance prices for the time being'by the efforts of the holders, is 
sometimes considered a dangerous element, as the larger owners may at any 
moment change their policy and throw their stocks out. 

The Chicago banks are now paying interest on the balances of country 
bankers at the rate of two per cent, per annum. In February, 1894, all the 
important banks entered into an agreement to reduce the interest on country 
balances io \% per cent. After being in force about a year, the agreement, 
which had never been any too closely adhered to by some banks, was broken 
altogether, and nearly all of the banks have returned to the old rate of two 
per cent, on balances.

The first six months of the present year have been remarkable for the 
general advance in wages. An advance of 10 per cent, has been made to- 
many thousand iron workers, and in many mechanical lines wages have 
been increased in about the same proportion. 



None of the Chicago banks have increased their dividends this year^. 
and two or three of them have adopted a conservative policy and reduced 
the dividend rate. The earnings of those banks making the reduction were 
sufficient to have maintained the old rates, but it was deemed wiser to con- 
tinue adding to the surplus and keep the dividend rate below the net profits. 



The Chicago Stock Exchange has recently adopted a new rule which 
permits trading in the account in any stock listed on the New York Stock 
Exchange. This plan admits of operation in New York securities without 
any division of commissions with New York brokers, and a good many 
members of the Chicago Exchange have strong hopes that a large business 
will be built up in New York stocks. 



There have been a few new issues of new securities during the i)resent 
year. The City Railway Company is to put out $1,000,000 new stock July 1^ 
and the construction companies which are building the Metropolitan P^le- 
vated Railroad and the Northwestern Elevated Railroad are planning an in- 
crease in their capital stock. The West Side Construction Company, which 
is the Metropolitan Elevated enterprise, is to double its capital from $3,()()0,- 
000 to $6,000,000. The Columbia Construction Compan}^ which is building 
Mr. Yerkes' Northwestern elevated railroad, is to increase its cajiital from 
$2,000,000 to $5,000,000.

Sanitary District of Chicago.— Members of Board of Trustees: John 
J. Alt peter, Wm. JJolde-uweck, J^3'niau E. Cooley, Bernard A. Eekbart, 
Arnold P. Gilniore, Richard Prendergast, William H. liussell, Frank 
Wenter. 

Officers of District: Frank Wenter, President of Board of Trustees; 
Thomas F. Judge, Clerk of District; Melville E. Stone, Treasurer of Dis- 
trict; Isham Randolph, Chief Engineer of District; George E. Dawson, At- 
torney of District. Offices of District: Rialto Building, Chicago, III. 

The Sanitary District of Chicago, a municipal corporation, organized 
under an act of the General Assembly of the State of Illinois, approved 
May 29, 1<S89, and in force July 1, 1889. Its affairs are administered by a 
Board of Trustees elected by the voters resident in the district. 

The Sanitary District of Chicago as thus organized includes all of the 
•city of Chicago (except a very small part south of Eighty-seventh street), 
the greater part of the towns of Lyons and Cicero, and a small part of the 
town of Riverside, with a population now (1895) of about 1,750,000. 

Soon after the organization of the Sanitary District of Chicago, the act 
of the Legislature was fully reviewed and declared constitutional on June 
12, A. D. 1890, by the Supreme Court of Illinois in two cases, Wilson vs. 
Board of Trustees, et al., 183 Illinois, page 443 (Northeastern lieporter, Vol. 
27, page 203), and People ex rel. vs. Nelson et al., 133 Illinois, page 565 
■{Northeastern Reporter, Vol. 27, page 217), and the power of the Board of 
Trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago to levy taxes, make special 
assessments, borrow money and issue bonds, and provide for the payment of 
the same under the provisions of and in accordance with said act was, after 
an exhaustive discussion, sustained in every particular. 

The law provides " That the corporation may borrow money for cor- 
porate purposes, and may issue bonds therefor, but shall not become in- 
■debted in any manner, or for any purpose, to an amount in the aggregate to 
exceed five per centum of the valuation of taxable propert}" therein to be 
ascertained by the last assessment for State and county taxes previous to the 
incurring of such indebtedness, proi'«7^fZ, however, that said five per centum 
shall not exceed fifteen million dollars ($15,000,000)." 

The first issue of Sanitarv District bonds, $2,000,000, was sold entire on 
October 11, 1892, to Blair ct'Co., of New York, for 101.51; the second of 
f 3,000.000, was sold entire on December 13, 1893, to N. W. Harris & Co., of 
Chicago, for 101.793; the third, of $3,000,000, was sold entire on August 17, 
1894, to N. W. Harris & Co., of Chicago, for 100.5707,and the fourth of 
$4,000,000, was sold entire on January 11, 1895, to the New York Life In- 
surance Co., of New York city, for lOO^j, the highest bid ever received for 
District securities. All of these bonds are now selling in the open market 
for above par on about a 4I4 percent, basis, all being currency bonds and all 
(except the last issue, which were 4^^ per cents.) drawing 5 per cent, inter- 
est, paj'able semi-annuallv. 

Total issue of bonds to date, May, 1895, is $12,000,000, of which $350,000 
have been retired. 

The equalized assessed valuation of the property in the district for 1891 
was $254,000,000, less than one-tenth of its actual value, and the tax levy for 
the purposes of the district was $1,090,000. 

The equalized assessed valuation of property for the year 1892, was 
$242,000,000, and the tax levy in 1892 for the purposes of the district was 
.$1,2011,000. 

The equalized assessed valuation for the year 1893 is $242,500,000. and 
theta\ levy fir 1893 for the purposes of the district was about $1,210,000. 
• 'TThe equalize:! assessed valuation for the year 1894, was $244,250,000. 
and the tax levy for 1894 for the purposes of the district is about $1,220,1)00,

BOARD OF TRADE. 12a 



HOW TRADING IS CONDUCTED ON THE CHICAGO BOARD OF 
TRADE. 

To trade successfully it is not necessaiy to be near the Board of Trade. 
Orders can be sent by mail and telegraph and by long-distance telephone. 
Thousands of successful operators make it a point of keeping away from the 
bustle and excitement of the Board, and are enabled to form a more reliable 
opinion of the market, as they are not influenced by the many conflicting 
rumors in circulation there. In giving orders to buy or sell, name profit 
desired, which may often be obtained the same day in active markets. When 
prices are low, or there is an advancing tendency, buy on fair concessions. 
When prices are high, or there is a declining tendency, sell on rallies. Take 
profits either way when the market halts and gets dull after a pronounced 
movement up or down. In active markets an advancing or declining move- 
ment will generally run three or four days, when it becomes exhausted and 
an opportunity is offered for making a profitable turn in the opposite direc- 
tion. A good trader will gather in many profits by following this general 
rule. 

There is a widespread misunderstanding in regard to transactions on 
the Board of Trade which arises from ignorance of its rules, many unin- 
formed persons believing that no property passes on these purchases and 
sales, and yet the rules of the Board not only contemplate the actual deliv- 
ery of all property bought and sold upon the floor, but has also made pro- 
vision and prescibed penalties for all damages that may arise in case of 
non-delivery upon the maturity of a contract. 

A Board of Trade contract matures on the last day of the term men- 
tioned in the contract, and all transactions made between members for the 
purchase or sale of grain, seeds or provisions on the floor of the Board of 
Trade are contracts under its rules. 

In order to facilitate business, transactions between members may be 
settled through the Clearing House of the Board when two members have 
pvirchases and sales coming from one and going to the other of the same 
article and for the same term or time. In these cases settlement between 
the two can be made at any time by an adjustment of the difference in 
prices through the Clearing House, thus avoiding the trouble and time in- 
volved in receiving and paying for the property bought, and immediately 
tendering it upon a sale to the same partj'^ who delivered it, and taking his 
check in return therefor. To receive property and give a check for it, then 
immediately deliver it to the same party it was received from on a sale made 
to him, and take his check in payment, would be ridiculous in the extreme 
Avhen the difference between the two prices settles the two transactions. 
These settlements are precisely like those of bankers in their clearings 
with each other, where a cashier's check is given for a balance that may i)e 
due, instead of passing large sums first to one and then another. 

The actual property so'ld must be delivered on all unsettled sales on the 
last business day of tlie term or month mentioned in the contract, unless 
previously sold ; and, as already stated, the rules of the Board provide that 
a defaulter shall pay the full measure of damages that may result to the 
purchaser for such non-delivery. 

It is legitimate for a dealer in the country to contract with a farmer for 
a part or the whole of his growinu' ov future crop to be delivered on a certain 
date or within a certain month, and the payment of a small part of the pur- 
chase money binds the contract, and the courts protect both the purchaser 
and the seller by compelling the fulfillment of the contract— one to deliver, 
the other to receive. The Board of Trade simply provides a way to do at 
Chicago that which no one questions as right and proper in the couutrj' — 
the margin required being not only to protect against losses by fiuctuations 
in prices, but as " earnest " or " part purchase mon ey " to insure the f ul- 



124 BOARD OF TRADE. 

fiUinent of the contract between all the parties interested, the margin itself 
being evidence of an existing contract. 

The large volume of grain and provisions actuallj^ delivered on sales 
on the first working day of each month is simply a delivery of pur- 
chases and sales made for future delivery on a previous date, and quite a 
large proportion of the shipments to seaboard and other marl^ets are pur- 
cliased weelvs, and sometimes months, beforehand. 

Before executing an order, a remittance is required by all commission 
merchants for protection against changes in the marlcet, and this remittance 
is called "margins." This remittance should accompany or precede each 
order, and should be Chicago exchange, payable to your broiler. When 
additional margins are required on account of lluctuations in prices, cus- 
tomers are advised of the amount needed in case they do not wish their 
transaction closed when the margin in hand is about exhausted. This 
-additional margin should be immediately deposited with a bank at your 
place to j^our broker's credit, and the cashier advises him by telegram 
of the amount so deposited. In case you do not wish to deposit with a bank, 
advise him at once, as he would then endeavor to call in time to remit by 
mail Chicago exchange or currency by express. Bear in mind, however, 
that the additional margin, if required, should be there before the margins 
already in his hands are exhausted. 

If purchases and sales are judiciously made there should be little or no 
loss, and everyone contemplating a purchase or a sale should remember 
that "prices go up to go down, and go down to go up," and buy and sell 
accordingly. 

There are three kinds of orders: First, a simple order to buy a given 
amount of a particular kind of grain or provisions, for delivery in some 
future month. These orders are considered good or open for the day only 
on which the order is received, and are filled on the market at once. 

THE METHOD 

of trading is simply this: Suppose it to be in January, and you wish to buy 
5,000, bushels of wheat, say for February delivery. If you buy, saj^ at .$ 1 a 
bushel, you send |250, which is 5 cents per bushel margin. If it advances 
to $1.05 you can order it sold, and immediately withdraw your margin and 
profit. Your profit would be .$250, less the "commission. Operators can 
always have the cash property, if they desire, by paying the balance due for 
the article besides the margin advanced. 

FLUCTUATIONS. 

The prices of Wheat, Corn and Oats fluctuate in points ig of a cent a 
bushel; igC on 5,000 bushels is .$6.25; 10c. on 5,000 would be $500; multiply 
the number of bushels by the number of cents it fluctuates. The price of 
Pork fluctuates in points of 2i:,'c. per barrel; 2^0. on 250 bbls. of pork would 
be $6.25; $1.00 on 250 bbls. would be $250; multiply the number of bbls. by 
the cents it has fluctuated. 

Lard fluctuates in points of 2i^c. per 100 lbs., or 8c. per tierce. This 
2i^c. per 100 lbs. (8c. per tierce) on 250 tierces of lard would be $20. If lard 
flul^tuates 50c. on 250 tierces it would be $400, or you can estimate any profit 
on lard by reducing the tierces to pounds and multiplying the number of 
pounds by price. There is 320 pounds to a tierce; multiplying the number 
of points it fiuctuates by 8 gives the profit on 250 tierces. 

$1,000 margins 20,000 bushels of wheat; if it fiuctuates one point, profit 
would be $200. There is no interest to be charged in carrying grain and 
provision deals. 

seller's option. 

Most trading on the Board is at " seller's option," that is, the party sell- 
ing has the privHege or " option " of delivering the property at any time he 
chooses during the month of delivery specified. This is what has given the 
name " options " to speculative trading. 



BOARD OF TRADE. 



125 



SELLING SHORT. 

Most people think there is only one way to speculate— that is to buy at 
an advance; but they can sell for a decline just as well, and the oppor- 
tunities occur about as often. The operation of a sale is just the reverse of 
a purchase. The margin on a purchase covers the exhaust price down or 
below the contract price, and the margin on a sale covers the e.xhaust price 
up or above the contract price. The market has to advance on a purchase 
and decline on a sale to make you a protit. The market generally declines 
a few points after a " boom " or sudden advance; then is the lime shrewd 
traders generally "sell short." Each individual trader can calculate the 
chances of success almost as well as the most experienced. The grades of 
grain speculated in are known as regular, or No. 2. 

You can also execute discretionary orders; that is, you can buy or sell 
whenever, to the best of your judgment, you think the market is right, and 
such orders can be placed to advantage. When an order reads "buy "or 
" sell " at " about " a given price, it is considered that a leeway of I4C per 
bushel from the price named on grain and 5c per barrel ou pork is given. 

COMMISSIONS. 

The following are the lowest rates of commission authorized by the 
Chicago Board of Trade, and cover both the purchase and sale, or what 
might be more properly termed the rouud trausaction: 

ig cent per bushel on grain, equal to |6.25 on 5,000 bushels. 

5 cents per barrel on i)ork, equal to $12.50 on 250 barrels. 

5 cents per tierce on lard, equal to $12.50 on 250 tierces. 

2)^cents per 100 pounds on short ribs, equal to 1 12.50 on 50,000 pounds.

ITEMS OF INTEREST. 

Theaverage cost of raising an acre of wheat in the United States is $11.69. 
In England the average cost 'is $38.54, and in India $3.24 per acre. The 
profit iu England is only 48c. per acre. 

The consumption of wheat per capita in the United States is generally 
calculated at 4% bushels and the population is 66,000,000. 

It is claimed that 100 lbs. of good hay are equal to 45 lbs. of wheat, 59 
lbs. of oats or 63 lbs of corn, for the purpose of feeding stock. 

No less than 24,000 lbs. of grain or seed should be loaded in a car, as 
the railroads charge for that ciuantity whether in the car or not. 

The annual consumption of hog products in the United States per capita 
is estimated at 70 lbs. 

No. 2 spring wheat sold at Chicago for 50%c. in July, 1894, and a sale in 
an outside location was made in September at 50c., these being the lowest 
prices for 25 years.

BOARD OF TRADE. 



TO COUNTRY GRAIN SHIPPERS. 

Storage rates at Chicago are f^'c. for the first ten days, and ^-^c. for each 
additional ten days or part thereof. This is what the elevator proprietors 
charge, but mustnot be construed to mean that this charge comes out of the 
country shipper. The rules of the Board of Trade provide that ^^c. storage 
must go with the first purchase of grain, and this is accepted by the buyer, 
so that the country shipper has no storage to pay, providing he has his grain 
sold within the first five days after arrival, as the receipts must have five 
days to run free of additional storage— the first charge being for ten days. 
Should the country shipper prefer to have his grain held until the five days 
have elapsed, then he is charged ij^c. storage, but then has the right to hold 
the grain ten days more, thus virtually having obtained fifteen days storage 
for his grain for }.^c. Each additional ten days will cost I3C. more, and so 
on. The point which many country shippers have not understood, and fre- 
quently inquire about, is the first ^^c. storage, and this explanation is given 
so that they may thoroughly understand the subject. Remember, {/" i;7i<? 
grain is sold on arrival or within the first five days thereafter, the country 
shipper pays no storage. i^»— ^ 

There are three terms applied to receipts: "Gilt Edge," those but 
three days old, having consequentiy seven days to draw from elevator on 
first storage of %c. per bushel. "Regular," those five days old and having 
five days to run on current storage. " Short Receipts," those having but 
one or two days to run before additional storage accrues. Most of the re- 
ceipts are sold " Gilt Edge," being most desirable on account of having 
longest time to run without additional storage. 

Another point to which it is necessary to call the attention of shippers 
is the charging of interest on all advances made on grain, seed, provisions 
or any kind of property handled on the Chicago Board of Trade; also the 
approved rate of insurance. The rules of the Board make it compulsory to 
do this.

The average oat crop of the world is estimated at 2,281,485,000 bushels; 
of this amount the United States produces 584,396,000 bushels. 

One hundred kilos equals 3.67 bushels wheat, 3.98 bushels corn, 6.87 
bushels oats, 3.93 bushels rye, and 4.58 bushels barley. 

Wheat sold in England in September, 1894, at an average price of 21 
hillings and 7 pence per quarter, the lowest in over two hundred years.

divide by 2150.4; the quotient will be the number of bushels. 

Short but accurate rule for the same : 

Multiply length, breadth and height, in feet, together. Multiply this 
by 45, and divide product by 56; or, to simplify, murtiply by 4 and divide 
by 5. 

Example — A bin 16 feet long, 8 feet wide, 14 feet high, will hold how 
many bushels? 

16x8x14=1792. 1792x45=80640. 80640-=- 56=1440. 

TO FIND THE QUANTITY OF GRAIN WHEN HEAPED ON THE FLOOR IN THE FORM 
OF A CONE. 

Rule — Square the depth and square the slant height in inches. Take 
their difference and multiply by depth, and this product by .0005. The re- 
sult will be the contents in bushels. 

TO FIND THE QUANTITY OF GRAIN WHEN HEAPED AGAINST A STRAIGHT WALL. 

Rule — Square one-half the depth and proceed as in the previous rule. 

TO FIND HOW MANY BUSHELS ANY PYRAMIDAL HOPPER WILL CONTAIN. 

Rule — Multiply length by breadth in feet, and tlien multiply this by 
one-third the perpendicular (not slant) height. This product, being cubic 
feet, change to bushels, by multiplying by 1728 and dividing by 2150.4, or 
multiplying by 45 and dividing by 56. 

Example— A hopper is 3 feet square and 2I3 feet high; how many 
bushels will it contain? 

3x3x21^=21^3=7 cubic feet. 

7x1726=12096-4-2150.4=5.6, or 7x45=315--56=5.6. 

jSfote. — The above rule is based on the supposition that the hopper is in 
the form of a pyramid. 

EAR CORN IN CRIBS. 

To approximate the total quantity of corn in a crib, multiply the length 
width and height of crib, and multiply this result by 4; then divide by 9 for 
settled corn, or divide by 10 for corn when first put in crib. 

The largest quantity of corn received in Chicago in any one year was 
97,272,000 bushels in 1880. 

In the year 1893 Chicago received over 83,500,000 bushels of oats— the 
largest quantity in any one year. 

In the year 1892 Chicago received 50,234,000 bushels of wheat— tlie 
largest yearly receipts on record.
